Fabulous! I was craving lasagna and hade a huge zucchini inmy garden. I used a can of Hunts spaghetti sauce in a can its only 1 dollar and added some more seasonings. Used Italian sausage instead of ground beef! Fabulous!!!
Wow! This was a huge hit with my guys. It was so hearty and delicious, they didn't even care that it was full of veggies and free of pasta. The zucchini on top made for a great presentation. I didnt measure my zucchini, but I think it was a bit more than called for. I also used vegetarian beef crumbles, which worked perfectly with this recipe (and are a healthier option for those looking to avoid red meat). I bookmarked this one, and I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks!
YUM! Cooked an extra 10 mins to compensate for not precooking zucchini, and I used a jar of sauce. I was surprised how little time it all took! And it got rave reviews:) Next time I'll put in a couple layers of fresh spinach. DELISH!
This recipe is AMAZING!!! I liked it better than regular lasagna and will be using the sauce part of the recipe for other recipes! :) :) :)
Awesome lasagna. I like this much better than regualar lasagna and it's so much lighter. I made two changes: I did not cook the zucchini before layering it and it turned out just the right texture- not too soft but not raw, and I added one small can of tomato sauce to the beef mixture. Delicious, thank you!
WOW!! My husband and I were IMPRESSED! Absolute winner with this one!
I had made up too much meat and veggies, I added celery too. So I had to add more moisture but instead of water I added a mixture of beef broth and milk. Other than that, I followed it to a 'T' and it came out great! Thanks for the recipe!! :)
I have been low carb for almost a year, and will tell you zucchini lasagna is a fantastic addition to the meal lineup. You can use any lasagna recipe and substitute zuch for noodles. I use a cheese slicer to make strips of zuch, boil them a few minutes in a big Texas skillet, dump the water then very lightly brown them in a little butter. Season the strips with garlic salt and onion powder and they won't be bland!
I used this recipe as a springboard. I had my own meat sauce leftover from spaghetti and I made a modified version of the ricotta using soy (see my recipe Hidden Delights Lasagna)
Funny thing was that 5yr old realized the zucchini when hubby didn't! We did notice it being watery though and that was with precooking the zukes. Hubby suggested keeping in the noodles. I may use the uncooked noodles that you can get that cook right in the dish. That way they could soak up the extra liquid.
OMG, this is excellent. Other than doubling the garlic, I didn't change a thing.
